“An anagramist walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…”  is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A anagramist version is:
     
“An anagramist walks into a bar, and the bartender says, ‘Why the clean fog?’”
     
The joke is based on the popular bar joke involving a horse:
       
“A horse walks into a bar and the barman says, ‘Why the long face?’”
   
“Why the clean fog?” is an anagram of “Why the long face?” The joke was posted on Twitter by Loon Liquors on January 14, 2013.
